Indeterminate tomatoes grow and bear all season until frost, on an ongoing basis. Determinate tomatoes bear their fruit over a concentrated period of time and then stop growing and stop bearing. If you are canning, for instance, you might prefer to grow a determinate type, if you primary interest is in fresh eating over a long season you might prefer an indeterminate type.
